Peak Cottage is a mere 10 minute uphill walk from the centre of Bakewell. Bakewell makes a perfect base from which to explore the Peak District, but is a charming, characterful market town in its own right and certainly deserves at least a day exploring.
The cottage was very clean and comfortable, with good facilities. Communications with the owner (Debra) were excellent and we were made to feel very welcome.
On the down-side, however, access to the cottage is via a short, narrow lane, in need of some repair, the top of which was very muddy and slippery. It made off-loading and reloading luggage quite awkward, and would be potentially hazardous in wet weather. Furthermore, cars must then be parked somewhere on the main road (for which there is some competition) because there is no space available to park in the access lane for tenants of Peak Cottage.
In short, a lovely cottage in a lovely town, but let down by its access and parking.
We stayed here for a birthday weekend in January. The cottage is lovely, very clean, well equipped and extremely comfortable- it has been made to feel like a home from home. We would highly recommend the location and cottage - the owners are very helpful and approachable, I doubt anything would be too much trouble. We will absolutely revisit!!
Lovely stay over the New Year period. Greeted on arrival by a well presented cottage and a bottle of Fizz and mince pies! Cosy living room and fireplace with wifi and good choice of tv freeview channels. Hairdryer and straighteners in bedroom should we have needed them.
Great bedrooms and beautiful views. 10 minute stroll down the hill to central Bakewell.
There to celebrate new year and my birthday - couldn't have enjoyed it more.
Would highly recommend, great communication from the owner felt very welcome there.
Thanks Debs! We loved it :) xx
We had a fab 4 night here! Lovely cottage very cosy and within walking distance of bakewell! We will definitely book again! And the doggie approves too
Really enjoyable weekend spent in Bakewell. Nice cottage in a good location. Plenty of great pubs a short walk away. Recommended!!
